The final miles of the Chicago Marathon, when the crowd was calling my name and I knew I was about to complete my first marathon.

There is nothing more satisfying to me than helping others achieve their goals and dreams!

 Because my optimism and enthusiasm is contagious J


Any tips for runners about to join your group?


Enjoy this moment; you’ve earned it!

Anything else you’d like to share?

I was obese until I was 30 years old; through diet, exercise, and a radical change in the way I think and view my life, and believe that I am a living example that your past does not define you!

What philanthropic activities do you have?

I volunteer at local races to offer support to runners (and give them candy and chips at mile 20!)  I am also active with church activities.
